I ended up taking a couple of more days off to heal. My legs are still hurting and I do not want to have this injury linger longer than it needs to. I guess I have been lucky so far that I have not been injured with all the marathon training these past few months. Other than general muscle fatigue I have not pulled any muscles.
The sprints are fairly new and hopefully now that I am incorporating them weekly my body will get used to the stress. We have been doing track work on and off for a while, but mostly 400’s not the short bursts for speed needed for 40’s and 150’s.
Juicing is still going well. I am trying not to dwell so much on it – just trying to incorporate it in my diet and get used to the taste and texture. I can’t say I love it and I have not been doing it long enough to say it changed my life or anything… I listen to a lot of podcast, read blogs and books where the authors proclaim miraculous, life-changing experiences when juicing. I have not experienced that at all. Maybe one day. I guess I had my hopes up too high!
I do, however, believe completely in the green drink in the morning. I love that drink and think I could have it for another meal – maybe dinner, as well and be perfectly happy. The problem is that I have to cook anyways so I do not really want to make two different meals each night.
Tonight is a fun night – a movie with the girls… I never thought in a million years I would be going to watch vampires with 20 other grown woman. It is fun. Some call it crazy, but who cares. I have had a great time with the new group of woman that I have met!
